I’m a traveling photographer, explorer, and mentor. Others say I’m a romantic dreamer looking for a happy ending. When my camera is not in my hand, I’m often found helping and teaching others how to be better photographers. My friends call me a photographer, an adventurer, a teacher, and sometimes crazy.

My Highlights

Guest artist at Munson Proctor Williams Art Institute annual Art Festival

My work being part of the Made in New York show at the Schweinfurth Museum

Teaching Creative Seniors photography in the ENCORE program sponsored by the NOPL

Being an organizer of the CNY Photographers, a meetup group dedicated to helping photographers improve their ability and helping the community of Central New York

Being a guest speaker at photography clubs and other organizations.

I’m Norm Schillawski and I want to share with you the art of photography, help you make beautiful photographs, and let you experience wonderful places with photography.
